I am a young woman who is on the quest to get healthy and fit. I am starting with vegan and live food. I am diagnosed with bipolar disorder which is a mental condition that has cycles of manic episodes and depressive symptoms. I am currently compliant in taking my medication but still cycle with about two weeks up and two weeks down. So instead of taking more medication which may have an adverse effect on my health I am using nutrition to help equalize my brain chemistry. I am chronicling my progress so that others can gain inspiration and ideas on how nutrition can heal the body, mind and spirit.
